Cons: "Had a connecting flight, both were with Lufthansa. There was an hour between the two flights. We went straight to security and immediately to the boarding gate but they had closed the gate and would not let us board, even though there was 15 minutes before the flight was due to leave. We were refused a refund and had to move flights to another airport 2 hours away and then had a 5 hour delay. We lost our car reservation as we would arrive too late to collect, we also couldn't check in to our hotel as planned as the hotel only allow check in until 11pm; we would have got there at 1am, so then had to book another hotel for the night. Airport staff at Lufthansa told us they could not help and told us to go away!"

Pros: "The food was pretty good. Normally I can't eat airplane food but it was actually good."
Cons: "The seat didn't go back at all"
Cons: "It took over an hour to drop off a bag prior to boarding. I had already checked in online. There were long lines in Bucharest and simply not enough staff working the Lufthansa desks."
Pros: "Clean, friendly environment, friendly staff, even though a bit bossy, but that's the German way (which I am too)."
Cons: "Little space. and NO WIFI. This is really no longer adequate in 2017. In the US, practically all domestic flights have wifi now."

Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "Lufthansa delivers always a great service. Good timing, schedule and service!"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Entertainment selections were good. Food was ok but better than any American flights in recent memory."
Cons: "Staff was courteous but not as service oriented as my initial flight to Munich the week prior which is the only reason for 3 stars. Not as friendly, fewer stops with drink cart and other refreshments"
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"
Pros: "The boarding was fast and clean, but we still Left with a little delay. The flight itself was fast and we arrived a bit ahead of schedule."
Cons: "The advance we had gained in the flight was taken up by an apron position, slow ground service and a distant arrival gate."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Few choice of movies"

2.5hr wait for baggage

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Opodo messed up my booking. I reached the airport only to find out that the booking was cancelled by Opodo though I received an email from Opodo 24 hours before advising me to check in on the flight. As I was busy with some construction work at home I thought I would check in at the airport. Opodo advisors were not helpful on the phone and I ended up missing a family get together due to their incompatibility."
Pros: "Good organization and nice staff"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The selection of movies was great. Boarding happened super fast and plane departed early."
Cons: "Plane was incredibly cold! Touch screen didn’t work well. Breakfast was lame. Flight attendants were super loud during breakfast service even though the lights were still dimmed."
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Cons: "Customer interaction is a joke"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our bags were lost, no apologies (in fact, the phone was put down on me twice), when the bags were returned after 24 hours, one was damaged and had to be replaced at my expense....no chance of a refund. My family and I will NEVER TRAVEL WITH AER LINGUS AGAIN....the worst airline in the world"
Pros: "On a 7 hour flight you want comfort. It was so smooth and easy. Watched movies, read, just relaxed. I've flown with Aer lingus before and it was just as amazing. I will ALWAYS use Are Lingus when I fly to the UK or Ireland and Shannon is a Gem of an airport. Most amazing airport I have ever been to!"
Pros: "Crew helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Announcement could be clearer. Sometimes gabled and indistinct."
Cons: "Flight was about an hour late taking off"
Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay up, kept sliding back seat27a."
Pros: "I fly a lot in the US. Most of the time I’m afaid of the US flight attendants because they act like I’m bothering them when I ask a question. Aer Lingus flight attendants were so nice and SMILED even at 3am! Great service!"
Pros: "Quick organized boarding, friendly staff, much better flight than I expected. Food was even pretty good...Customs in Shannon was MUCH easier than Heathrow would have been, so thankfully, I went through customs in Shannon."
Cons: "The flight attendants were helpful enough, but they did not offer as many drinks as I like. Breakfast was only coffee, tea or water. No juice at all."
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Made me check my carryon bag then it was opened - why - don’t know - and items missing along with my luggage strap. Will NEVER use Aer Lingus again"

Cons: "Gate unknown till last minute"
Pros: "You lost myluhgage. I have no clean clothes to ware"
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"

Cons: "The plane interior needed maintenance. The seat pocket in front of me was falling off, and things were tattered"
Pros: "I like the comfort and reliability of this airline in my experience."
Pros: "A replacement plane did not take hours to get set."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 1/2 hours as another plane (Titan) was used as the scheduled plane was not operational."
Pros: "Short flight so no food"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "First time I flew with Aer Lingus and can't say I will do it again. Didn't realize I was flying across continents in such a small plane. The flight attendants were barely civil; the bin above me housed supplies and on more than one occasion an attendant with visibly wet armpits leaned over me without nary an excuse me."
Cons: "Early boarding.. wondering could this catch me out on another occasion?"
Cons: "Chaotic mele in the cabin as people used both entrances and met in the middle."
Pros: "On time. Reached early"
Cons: "No compliments of drinks"
Pros: "Seats comfortable, crew pleasant"
Cons: "My plane was broken, they had no idea when and if we were going fly away. Once the plane was brought to the gate, mechanics had the engine apart inspecting it. Then they caused a fuel spill during fill up which caused the fire trucks to come. This was very discomforting for 300 people waiting for 4+ hours to get on their plane. Once on the plane internet did not work, and my in seat entertainment was rebooting often. I spent 7+ hours at Dublin Airport, sick with a sinus congestion... Plus all the restaurants and shops were closed due to it being after hours of their operation. Last time flying this airline."
Cons: "My issue has more to do with after the flight, than the actual flight. My luggage was lost somehow between Heathrow and Shannon. The lack of communication I received from Aer Lingus, and the length of time it took for me to get the luggage was a bit ridiculous. I was never told what happened to the luggage and I was given the timeline to receive my luggage within 24 hours. Well it took over 48 hours to get the luggage. I was given specific timeframes to call the Shannon Airport Aer Lingus luggage desk, which I followed. Had to leave a message every time, and not once was it returned. The only communication I did get was calling the Shannon Airport directly and working with their employees. I could tell they were frustrated with me, which is completely understandable, because they weren't the appropriate people to communicate with. I was just very disappointed in the customer service."
Pros: "Seats comfortable even with my disabilities."
Cons: "Assistance seats all taken by able bodies. No room for disabled. Not enuf staff for volume of disabled rendering a delay to our flight E1 273."
Pros: "All was ok on trip. We didn't have food or drink."
Cons: "The trip while 10mins late leaving was ok. The big problem I felt was we were going to a funeral and 2 booked Monday and 3 booked Tuesday. We are 3 retired ladies and had to pay €276 each while the 2 men paid €150."
Cons: "no entertainment or food on this short flight so can't assess."
Pros: "The effort made by the flight crew to find someone who was willing to switch their emergency exit seat with my cramped seat."
Cons: "Seating was really a disgrace. Being 6'3" made it unbearable. Seats are way too narrow and leg room non existent. Especially if the person in front of you reclined their seat."
Cons: "There were absolutely no vegetarian meals. All flights should at least have a few extra just in case someone needs some. After I refused the meal, I didn't even get water or anything. I was given a nauseating wrap with tea towards the end of the flight. I'm not even sure how that was expected to be edible. Unbelievable, I will not be flying Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "We were surprised at check-in by a baggage charge for our 1st checked bag for each passenger. (We were led to believe that the 1st checked bag had no charge for each passenger before arriving at the airport.)"
Pros: "The biz class seat was good."
Cons: "Disorganized / messy check-in."
Cons: "A/c was not working and is not the first time that happened on aerlingus....my question is do you do maintenance on aircraft??????"
Cons: "This flight was connection to Rome from US. In Rome, my luggage never made it. Same flight a few days earlier, my mother has the same thing happen. If they can't get luggage on a connection, something is wrong. There was plenty of time. Otherwise flights were fine."
Pros: "Flight attendant was delightful."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Online pre boarding would not allow me to print boarding pass but once at airline, everything went smoothly."
Pros: "USA immigration at Dublin aerport"
Cons: "Buying drinks st ridiculous high prices on the flight. Sests with restricted legroom because of entertainment boxes."
Cons: "No food or drinks included; everything was an extra charge."
Cons: "No TSA precheck Confusing check-in based on counter location and inexperienced agents."
Cons: "We froze the entire trip each way as we had the exit seats"
Pros: "The in-flight staff were also very helpful."
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Poor flavor. I had the Shepherds pie. And although I was grateful to have a meal offered, this one was a little off in flavor."
Pros: "Everyone is so nice!"
Pros: "The crew was incredible!"
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Not enough leg room.."

No issues at all with BA and the flight. The crew were great, made us feel welcome and nothing was too much of a problem. Flight itself was great, good seats, good food and drinks provided throughout. Good entertainment with good choice of films and games and my 9 year old nephew was entertained throughout. The biggest issue throughout the trip was Heathrow and not being able to do the simple things well. Our flight was delayed over an hour due to delay in towing the plane from one side of the airport to the other and then waited over 30 mins to get off as a gate wasn't ready, attaching 1 set of stairs (even low cost airlines use 2!) to get onto a bus (not great if you're at the back of the plane).

No gate till 10 minutes to boarding closure, so everyone rushed at the end; airplane was dirty; airplane arrived late ands landed late in Shannon; no food at all even if 200 euro flight ticket

I liked that the plane wasn't full so I could stretch out. I didn't like that there wasn't much of a choice of cuisines.

Cons: "For an hour and one half flight the seats were tolerable. Anything longer than that would have been torture."
Cons: "Food needs improvement, crew was a bit rude"
Cons: "This was a really old plane. The screens were really small And was so scratched and messed up that it was almost impossible to use . I was never offered a choice of breakfast before I boarded and I could not get what I wanted. You do not offer enough space fo list all my comments. Very unfair"
Pros: "Nothing, total stress making us re-check our baggage"
Cons: "British AIrways could have checked our bags through from Denver to Paris....after all it was British Airways to British Airways, but they made us check only to London, retrieve bags carry them to another terminal recheck them for what Simon the BA ticket writer was nothing but pure error by British"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "On a 4 hour flight Offer snacks and water without charge. Children were screaming the entire flight. The crew stood in the back reading magazines instead of checking if people needed more drinks."
Cons: "Flight from heathrow to Manchester stopped it being excellent alll round as flight delayed over an hour"
Pros: "The in flight services met my expectations."
Cons: "We were informed at the Nairobi check in that our tickets had been suspended because of possible risk of fraud. Attempts to resolve this promptly were not successful. For a first time traveler to the UK, this created unnecessary anxiety and gave us the feeling that the agency appointed to check us in are not supportive. We were eventually sorted but this is not nice at all given the fact that payments went through and tickets were issued and no one informed us of any issues until we got to the airport. Some feedback would be appreciated."
Pros: "We made very good time. Crew members were courteous and helpful. Check in was very easy. ."
Cons: "Uncomfortable and tight seating on the 787. No room to walk around on 7 + hour trip."
Pros: "Crew excellent as always on BA, boarding fine, usual hassle getting to seats with other passengers blocking aisle,but when you choose to sit at the rear and the plane loads the forward seats first it's to be expected. Seats were very comfortable (much better than Virgin Airbus 330) and plenty of legroom. Food was better than on previous flights and drinks service was good - shame they ran out of wine, Bacardi and gin towards the end of the flight though! Liked the automated bag drop at Gatwick, much quicker and plenary of staff in case there were any issues."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment poor. Not enough choice, screens have seen better days too. Virgin do this aspect much better."
Cons: "Seats to small"
Pros: "The food, the wine"
Pros: "Courtesy of tge british airway staff"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The delay made me miss my connections, and cost me a day at a festival I paid a lot of money for and planned 6 months around. the options given by staff were not too helpful"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "No drink, fixed seat, am senior and no assistance at all."
Pros: "Boarding at the gate was quick and easy."
Cons: "Charge for Coke was USD$ 2. Did not advise Gate fpr LHR to Venice until45 minutes. Had more seating at the gate then the main terminal "A". It was in "B" gate."
Pros: "All BA personnel from check-in to landing were outstanding, professional."
Cons: "I had requested and been assured there would be a wheelchair waiting at Heathrow to transport me to my connecting flight in terminal 3. I never got one. We kept being told to walk to another place and there would be one. This went on all the way to the plane which was already boarding."
Cons: "no free food in a 2h flight??!! thia is a low xoat airline standard!!"
Pros: "I managed to get onto an earlier flight than anticipated when my original flight to Milan was canceled. The flight went well and service was certainly completely acceptable. I don't recall many details more than two weeks later."
Cons: "The exit row seat available on the rebooked flight was a middle seat, and I can't really complain since I did get the extra leg room I originally booked. I didn't like the length of time I had to wait at Heathrow, however, due to the canceled flight. It was several hours! My apartment rental landlord and I were both inconvenienced somewhat by the late evening arrival when an early afternoon arrival was initially scheduled."
Pros: "Feels good to fly with a company that cares"
Cons: "Leg room seems to be disappearing on all airlines unless you pay for it"
Pros: "It was really British Airways operating the flight!"
Cons: "PLANE WAS FULL"
Pros: "Movie choices"
Cons: "Food was horrible. Potatoe chips were served as the 2nd meal. Yuck..seat cushion was hard, leg room was super tight. A painful 7 hours."
Pros: "Clean plane; friendly crew..."
Cons: "BA charges for everything on the plane, even water!"
Cons: "Seat cushions inadequate; back support insufficient. Food mediocre."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Small plqne"
Pros: "Great snack options and wide drink assortment"
Cons: "Red wine wasn't that great"
Cons: "You never gave me the opportunity to pick my seat and I was given a window seat over and back with 2 fat pigs next to me. What the hell were you thinking. You baggage personnel stole the gifts We purchased for our grandchildren in the Baltimore airport terminal baggage area. Where was TSA security?"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Flight was on time. This allowed us to make our connection."
Cons: "Tickets & bags checking clerk was rude; not very helpful."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Not even a cup of coffee! WOW. they charge and nickle and dime you to death. I had to buy a seat to be guaranteed to sit next to my wife. the base price for the flight was reasonable but then they added extra charges that were almost 1/2 more. the baggage charge was high. If I have my choice would not fly BA again."
Pros: "Deserts were really good"
Cons: "Would be great to have Healthier snacks inbetween the meals"
Pros: "The middle seat was empty. Handed out drinks regularly."
Cons: "Really long gap between the main meal and the snack. I was hungry enough my stomach was growling. General boarding was mayhem. On the way to London, we boarded back to front. Fewer available movies than on United."
Pros: "Seats were much more spacious than expexted. Must have been an older plane where they did not bother to reconfigure the seating"
Cons: "Surprised to find that beverages were no longer free. Took for ever to deplane, just made my connecting flight."
Pros: "Plenty of choice on the inflight video. Paid extra for better seats, which allowed for some sleep during the overnight flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor weather at Heathrow, nothing can be done about that, but it meant that we did not take off until after 22:00. Drinks were served almost immediately but it was close to 23:30 before a meal was served and 00:30 before this was cleared away. Lights were then dimmed but at 05:00 breakfast was served. A cottage cheese bagel was the last thing I wanted to see and when we asked for some water, we were told that there was none available. We landed at 06:25 but then had to sit on the tarmac for 15-20 minutes as there were no vacant gates for us. (This had the effect of increasing the parking fee for the driver waiting to pick us up, as he was not aware that we were sitting on the tarmac). Please note all times are New Orleans times. Hence actual time of landing was 12:25 BST. And talking of New Orleans, I would not class this as an International Airport. It is dilapidated, inefficient and lacking facilities."
Pros: "Very attentive crew smooth flight"
Cons: "Poir food and cramped seats in economy"
Cons: "Friendly staff, clean plane"
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously small! I'm only 5'11" and could barely fit. I can't imagine what it's like for a taller man. It's also the first time I ever broke into a sweat on a flight. There are no overhead vents! Complaints to the staff were met with a surly reply that nothing could be done. Food was inedible. Movies were ok but they put the box for the equipment under the seat in front of you! What little space we have for our feet is now taken up by the entertainment equipment!! I've had much better experiences on discount regional airlines than on this trans-Atlantic "premium" carrier."
Pros: "Very pleasant and solicitous British cabin crew."
Cons: "Delayed departure."
Pros: "Food. The chicken makhani was tasty and food overall was good"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft Tired crew Glitchy entertainment Slowest of boarding Super slow service Overall a disappointment"
Cons: "arrive the air craft. By buses"
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailing patient and polite and as helpful as they could be. Given the situation with the IT problem at BA, it was amazing that we were scheduled, and took off on time and arrived in Tel Aviv on time. Congratulations to all!"
Cons: "We were at the back of the plane, which was pretty difficult for my 6'6" husband and his long legs. We were told every seat was full (because of the IT problem). However, after takeoff it became apparent that there were some empty seats, but they weren't offered to us. One man was asleep across three exit row seats, for example. We had two seats in a three seat row, which would have given us a bit more room, but a woman was moved to the window seat with us, to accommodate a religious man who didn't want to sit next to her. She was very nice, but the whole situation was annoying and distasteful. And, unfortunately, the food was just as bad as our last flight."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Cons: "we didn't get a snack before landing we only got a drink. we were only given food at the beginning of the flight and it was an 8 hour flight. I was not able to change my flight for this trip had to do it at the counter; but the friend who i was traveling with did have the ability to do so. I went early to the airport in Johannesburg to ensure we could sit together but the workers in terminal A sent me to terminal B (even though they were closed and didn't open until 3) then i went to the ticketing desk and they said they couldn't' help me. so i ask them to call British Airways help desk (since i didn't have a phone internationally) and they said they were closed on the weekend. I wrote the gentleman's name down but i don't have it with me right now. I was finally able to get my seat changed when i checked in at 6pm; lucky there were seats available. I would say the customer service at Johannesburg airport for BA is terrible."
Pros: "The plane had quite a bit of leg room, more than my flight from Denver to London. The movie selection was nice. Free wine and beer is always a plus. They gave a nice sized cup of coffee, but the coffee was terrible. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The head phone jack only allowed sound in one ear. The food wasn't great, and the expectations were low."
Pros: "Cleanness and convenience."
Cons: "Seat selection only 24 hours ahead."
Pros: "I actually slept the whole way."
Pros: "Quick boarding."
Cons: "The seats are just not comfortable in the slightest. There is no room. No where to put your legs."

Pros: "Great crew. :)"
Cons: "Landing a little bumpy this time but overall a good flight."
Cons: "Plane was late as most Ryanair flights in the afternoon are expected to be."
Pros: "While the movies choices were limited and the quality not that great, the price was not large either."
Pros: "Left on time got in early"
Cons: "Nothing for the price"
Pros: "Quick and on time"
Cons: "Rubbish carry on policy and constant sales"
Pros: "The crew and the timeliness of the flight."
Cons: "The level of comfort. Pretty terrible airplane seats, but are tolerable if you’re doing a short flight."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Stood in a queue for ages. Got our bags checked and then told that flight in was delayed and once in passengers will deboard first and rhen we will board. No apologies offered. We left late and areived in Dublin late. The trays in front of our seats (all three in our row) were dirty with spilled teas etc and we were not able to use rhem. As for flight and crew and everything else it was ok and nothing special. We felt rushed and were told get a move on quickly."
Pros: "Staff were very friendly and very patient with difficult passengers!"
Cons: "Plane felt cramps, but it was a low price so to be expected."
Pros: "Keeps to schedule. A high performing low cost airline."
Cons: "Cost of the food and drinks but I’ll still fly with Ryanair again."
Pros: "I got to my destination"
Cons: "If they don’t speak good English and have heavy accents, why don’t they slow down the announcements, so people have at least a small chance to understand???"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding commenced after the given departure time with no sign of a delay on the departure boards. There was no clear guidance for queuing, so the speedy boarding we paid extra for was close to useless, staff then scanned boarding passes without a care for passports. Once on the plane the flight was delayed for 2 hours and only after 45 mins of sitting around waiting for an explanation were we given one by the captain."
Pros: "You get what you pay for, it's a budget airline everything designed tfor you to pay extra"
Cons: "As above"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Quick efficient flught"
Cons: "Didn’t pay for priority booking as I had my seat prepaid and only one bag . Why would you pay for priority booking?? I think the system could be simpler"
Pros: "Cheap cheap cheap!"
Cons: "I find it incredibly ridiculous that a flight is half full and I’m deliberately seated away from my husband just so Ryan Air can make an extra £4 per seat. I get that they want to make money but that’s pushing it too far. I sat next to someone who was also traveling with someone else. That lady’s companion came back and told her the seat next to her was empty. By then everyone was already settled in. Is it really worth the £8 for two people? I’m sorry but that’s just petty."
Cons: "Toilets needed a good clean, they also smelled stale"
Pros: "Efficient, good value and on time"
Cons: "Non priority Queue and the fact that my bags were put in the hold."
Pros: "Finding an affordable flight to allow the family to get away for a weeks holiday that would otherwise not be possible."
Cons: "Having the family sitting separately on the flight as we were not able to afford to pay additional money to per book seats. But it was only a 2 hour flight so we coped. Think it would be a good idea if the airline didn’t just assume that because a child is 11 years old they are able to sit away from their parents. My son has additional needs and so although his chronological age is 12 years his developmental age is only 7/8 years so being sat away from his parents was very stressful for him. Maybe asking during booking if any of the party hav s additioonal needs would be a good idea."
Pros: "Staff were good - even the cabin crew member who was still training was friendly and professional. Landing was incredibly smooth. The pilot also dealt very well with the turbulence and was able to predict it so the seatbelt sign already came on before any trouble."
Cons: "Even by budget airline standards, Ryanair is mediocre at best. The chairs are uncomfortable for a 4 1/2 hour flight - manageable, maybe, for a shorter journey but not anywhere good enough for that length of time. Boarding took an unusually long time and even priority passengers were stood around waiting to get onboard a good 15 minutes or so after already having gotten into the jetway. Not to mention after landing, we were stood over an hour waiting for baggage because, for some reason, four different flights used the same carousel (and presumably only had one team getting baggage off all four planes) despite there being a second one free which I'm sure they could have easily used. Don't have four planes landing near concurrently if you don't have the facilities to deal with it. Ryanair is cheap, yes, but by the time you have to pay ridiculous amounts for things most other airlines consider normal (for starters, you can't even take a full size hand luggage bag on board without priority boarding), it adds up to being less "budget" than it would have been to fly with a higher end airline like British Airways and you'd have to be an idiot to choose Ryanair over a cheaper, higher quality, airline. Honestly, I have no idea how people choose Ryanair more than once in their lifetime."
Pros: "Reasonable cabin bag allowance."
Cons: "Even with priority boarding, kept standing as long time in a freezing tunnel."
Pros: "Crew were nice"
Cons: "Seating was cramped"
Pros: "It’s nice flying into Alicante where often those awful automatic passport machines give way to mails checks so much faster"
Pros: "Great trip, right on time, plane was clean, colors are a little weird, guessing some one is a Michigan football fan"
Pros: "Very quick flight"
Cons: "Slightly delayed"
Cons: "Birmingham airport is awful the facilities the infrastructure the waiting the queues for security 0/10"
Pros: "Flying was excellent"
Cons: "Delays on the ground with no indication of that on the message boards"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Late departure. Staff herding us like cattle before take off. Smelly cabin."
Pros: "savannah and other staff member who catered for front of airline were just fanstatic.. down to earth really helpful and clearly experienced. really well done. please can they be passed some thanks from me. wayne trueman front row"
Pros: "On time and friendly service"
Cons: "Hard landing was a bit worrisome"
Pros: "If you like be herded around like cattle, and having no apology even when your flight is late, then you've come to the right place."
Cons: "Late flight. Family scattered around cabin in different seats. Completely unnecessary."
Pros: "The flight boarding was delayed by 45 mins originally, which was added 15 mins onto then half an hour when we were then we were all very badly moved to another area when I say very badly, we were given poor instructions and me and some other passengers almost ended up on the wring flight. After we finally got to where we were supposed to be half hour was said that came and gone then another 15 mins when we were moved back to boarding area. Another half hour finally got boarded then and after this was the usual great Ryanair experience."
Cons: "The flight boarding was delayed by 45 mins originally, which was added 15 mins onto then half an hour when we were then we were all very badly moved to another area when I say very badly, we were given poor instructions and me and some other passengers almost ended up on the wring flight. After we finally got to where we were supposed to be half hour was said that came and gone then another 15 mins when we were moved back to boarding area. Another half hour finally got boarded"
Pros: "Left on time,arrived early."
Cons: "All the steps to board plane."
Pros: "Simple budget flight. You get what you pay for."
Cons: "Unexpected manual checking of bag into hold. I hadn't packed with that in mind and was concerned about breakage and the fact that my bag had no lock. But the bag survived intact."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late without notice. I payed for selected seating and was not seated with my husband, I payed more for my luggage than the air fair, had to pay for water. Pushing for product sales. The most unrelaxing ride I have ever been on. And complicated checkin online."
Pros: "There is a large lounge at the gate at Gatwick that the passengers could have been checked into prior to boarding commencing, but this was not used. Instead, A large queue was in place for over 40 minutes and once boarding commenced, as many were checking cabin bags into the hold, boarding took about 30 minutes, delaying the flight by 30 minutes"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Ryanair boarded the plane only for us to be stuck inside a dirty stinky tunnel with no plane at the end of it. Crying children, moaning kids, no air conditioning, for about 1.5 hours. Ryanair as a company KNEW they'd be delayed, yet they board us into a disgusting tunnel to sit on the floor with no toilets no water nothing. We then board but at this point I was deathly ill and Ryanair didn't take care of us at all with any free refreshments like they should have for being late. Disgusting service. Won't be flying with them ever again this happens way too often."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "They left the luggage behind.... LoL"
Pros: "Very unorganized and discretion about what was a carry on bag differed. I was charged an extrodinary fee while others did not."
Pros: "We had to carry our bags up and down several flights of stairs. Not very friendly to disabled or elderly folks."
Cons: "My daughter had to pay $20 dollars to bring her boarding pass and then thy told her the card was declined. I called credit company at 1 am my time in Hong Kong and they said card was never submitted so could not have been declined. This caused us time, worry and money for long distance phone calls."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 4 hours"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Walking through endless sales & loud music to get to airplane"
Cons: "Delayed for a couple of hours, and had run out of most things on the plane."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding"
Pros: "I chose Ryanair because of their 10kg cabin baggage allowance. They've really improved from my past (and after that I swore I'd never use them again) experience. Really slick."
Cons: "Constant trying to sell you extras."
Cons: "Nickel & dime u to death"
Pros: "Plane was late and no reason given until we were sitting on the plane."
